The Sun scored the final six points, holding off the Sky to win Game 1 of the WNBA semifinals 68-63 on Sunday night at Wintrust Arena. Game 2 is Wednesday in Chicago.

After Emma Meesseman hit a three-pointer to give the Sky a 63-62 lead with 2:11 left, Jonquel Jones hit a 7-footer to put the Sun in front for good.

The late fade was reminiscent of Game 1 of the Sky’s first-round series, in which the Liberty closed the game on a 13-0 run to win 98-91.

Candace Parker led the Sky with 19 points and 18 rebounds. Kahleah Copper had 13 points and Meesseman 10. Dewanna Bonner led the Sun with 15 points, and Alyssa Thomas had 12 points and 10 rebounds.
